    You can use DataSets, SQL Linqs, .NET Objects for establish an connection with the Database.

    For the Microsoft SQL, is natively provided the "System.Data.SqlClient" namespace that contains the "Driver" for the manual connection using the .NET.

    If you want to use other SQL Databases as MySQL / Oracle / Firebird, you need to use other library with the "Driver" for this database type, but the process is basically the same.

    I advise to learn at first using the DataSet, an easy way to work with databases. Is compatible with many controls and auto-configurable.

    I really like of "Head First" books. I don't know but there's an edition of "Head First VB.NET".

    I've read the C# edition and is an excellent book for beginners.
